    I respectfully disagree. The pose for my full-length shot today has a bit too much contrapposto in it (my left shoulder is out of kilter with my right), which doesn't flatter the suit (or me, for that matter), but the Phineas cut, overall, is fine for me. The non-horizontal lie of the hem of the skirt of the jacket is not my favorite aspect of this suit, but its effect is much subdued simply by unbuttoning the jacket.

    Got a Galaxy S2, so my pics are probably going to be a little better from now on... not particularly this one though.

    Same tie as a couple days ago. I really need some new cashmere ones. Shirt is Charles Tyrwhitt, tie is Lester (decent spanish brand) and PS is E.G. Cappelli. Coat is el cheapo from department store (no synthetics on the outer shell, though).

    Nothing special to show. So glad that it is Friday.

    Much applause for today's post by RDiaz. He has assembled a really nice combination of color, pattern, and texture.

    I am confused about the tie knot, shirt collar and lapels of the coat.

    The tie knot somehow screams micro penis to me..more so because of the shirt collar. I'm thinking very overweight gentleman whose gut overhangs and obscures what looks to be undersized but in reality is probably normal, junk. I know you're supposed to be this very refined, opinionated gent here who gets a lot of respect, but these are my thoughts upon viewing the photo and I'm probably wrong.

    How do you end a rant like that with this?

    mafoofan Really nice collar on that shirt! I don't have a problem with that small knot combined with the rather wide collar and lapels. Tie looks to be a Rubinacci, unlined?

    You're right. I felt like I needed to soften a bit I guess. Now my dick feels small.

    Once you show the capacity to lose Alpha points, you forfeit the right to ever call yourself an Alpha.

    Evidently the waitstaff at Brown's thought similarly, so perhaps you are onto something.

    It's a nice shirt collar.

    You don't have a problem because it's Foo, not because it isn't wrong. There's even more wrong with the tie knot as it isn't in proportion to his face either, let alone what he's wearing.

    You were treated poorly because of the way you were dressed?
